Design by Tom Dixon, 2010.
The Void lamps reference the Olympic medals with three metallic finishes: brass, polished stainless steel and copper. Inspired by vacuum flasks, these mysterious lighting objects conceal a powerful halogen lamp that concentrates the light to create a soft directional beam.
Solid metal sheets are pressed, spun and braised to form a double wall shade. They are hand polished to create a mirror surface which is lacquered to maintain a high gloss finish. Void makes use of existing techniques and regular fittings - the innovation lies in the undulating form of the shade.
Material(s): copper, brass, polished stainless steel
Dimensions: 11.8"D x 6.1"H; 98" black cable.
Lamp Type: halogen
Bulbs: 1 X 25W 120V G9 halogen lamp (included)

Born in Sfax, Tunisia in 1959, to a French/Latvian mother and an English father, Tom Dixon moved to England aged four and spent his school years in London. He dropped out of Chelsea School of Art to play bass in the band Funkapolitan before teaching himself welding and going on to produce furniture.
Tom rose to prominence in the mid 1980's as "the talented untrained designer with a line in welded salvage furniture". He set up 'Space' as a creative think-tank and shop front for himself and other young designers. By the late 1980's, Tom Dixon's international reputation grew, he was approached by Italian furniture design company, Cappellini, for whom he desinged the Iconic "S" chair. In the 1990's, he became a household name and Jack, his polypropylene "sitting, stacking, lighting thing" designed for his own company Eurolounge was a symbol of the age.
Tom Dixon's appointment as Head of the UK design studio at the furniture retailer Habitat in 1998 was considered controversial. He came from a self-employed background instead of a corporate culture and was never considered "establishment". Tom Dixon led the company through its biggest makeover and quickly won recognition by becoming Head of International Design in 1999 and Creative Director in 2001. He was the public face of a collective team responsible for rejuvenating the Habitat brand, while maintaining Terence Conran's dream of enriching everyday life through simple, modern design and creating a shopping experience that is theatrical and intimate.
In 2000, Tom's work was recognized by the award of an OBE by Her Majesty The Queen. His works have also been acquired by the world's most famous museums and are now in permanent collections across the globe including Victoria and Albert Museum, Museums of Modern Art New York and Tokyo and Centre Beaubourg (Pompidou).
"Honestly, I can't remember ever holding an ambition to be a designer. It just slowly came over me as I rejected notions of being an artist or, a craftsman. Even today I prefer the idea of being an industrialist."- Tom Dixon.
Established in 2002, Tom Dixon is a British design and manufacturing company of lighting and furniture.

In 2004 Proventus, the Swedish-based private investment company, teamed up with Tom Dixon to establish Design Research, a design and product development holding company. Tom Dixon launches new collections annually at the Milan international furniture fair and product is sold across 61 countries.
Great Fixture with 'Plastic' Form
A well made fixture with a uniquely 'plastic' form. I have always been a fan of Tom Dixon's understated designs. I used two of these as accent lighting for a bedside console in a residence. Fixtures do not give off much light but the quality of light great. Bathes the space in a warm golden glow. I would not suggest the fixture for task lighting but primarily as an accent.

Still very "hip" in modern design. Using this piece along with 7 other similar styles in round shapes, clear glass & metallic for a dining room design
Tom Dixon's classic is still in style! Love it very much

The Void Pendant Light is truly beautiful, but one must be aware of the small pool of light that it creates on the floor only.
Everything Tom Dixon designs is gorgeous. I have always found the
quality of construction to be top notch. One must study the light fixtures
very carefully. The light produced by some of the fixtures has very specific
qualities. The Beat fixtures emanate pools of light only, this works
beautifully over a table or an island, but not great for illuminating a room.
The Void Pendant in brass is so beautiful but the small pool of light
must be considered. I think they would be perfect in mass as a decorative
